Why Use Blackboard?

By integrating the Research Skills Modules into Blackboard Learn, faculty can embed selected videos and tutorials throughout their course materials and add quizzes and tests which connect to their grade book.

Students do not need to login to the Modules if they are embedded into Blackboard Learn using the special links below and checking the Tool Provider box.

How to Add Research Skills Modules into Blackboard Courses

  1. In Blackboard, click on Build Content and select Web Link.
  2. Paste in the content name below or give it your own name. 
  3. Paste in the URL below.
  4. Check the box next to This Link is to a Tool Provider. (Very important step!)
  5. For quizzes, check Yes to Enable Evaluation and set the Point Value (25 points for Pre-Test or Post-Test, 5 points for Quizzes)
  6. Optional – Set visibility, due date, and add a description or instructions.
